100% Design, the UK's largest design trade show, returns to Olympia London from 20-23 September. Taking place in the burgeoning design district of West Kensington over four days, 100% Design showcases leading national and international exhibitors, many of whom will be launching new products at the show.
Split into five sections, the show presents products across Interiors, Workplace, Kitchens & Bathrooms, Design & Build and Emerging Brands.

Attracting more than 27,000 professional visitors, 2017 marks 23 years of London’s iconic design show.
For this year’s edition 100% Design hosts Dealer Day, a professional programme of networking, seminars and talks for this influential design community.
Ceramics feature heavily across both the Design & Build and Kitchen & Bathroom show sections, whether it’s in the form of new flooring ranges from Grestec Tiles, a Portuguese ceramics showcase from Apicer, or Concrete LCDA’s concrete for interior architecture.
